The monument was blown up in but rebuilt in at approximately the same spot. So did the population: Ruse was no longer the second-largest city in Bulgaria after former East Rumelian capital Plovdiv , being quickly surpassed by Sofia and Varna. Foreign consulates were closed, except for the Russian one, which has remained functional since. Only for the period between and the capital loss is estimated of around 40 million leva. The return of Southern Dobrudja to Bulgaria in September fostered good conditions for restoration of the city's leading role.
It became a provincial centre, and economic activity revived. Typical for the post-war architecture of the city was the wide use of iron, concrete and glass as construction materials. Examples are the River port — , the Freight station — , Market Hall — and the Court house — The construction of the Ruse-Giurgiu bridge in and the fast industrialization gave a new push to development. Ruse emerged again as an important economic, transport, cultural, and education hub.
Engineering, chemical, and light industries expanded; a large harbor was built; and the city became a university centre. At the census, a population of more than , was reported. In the early s, Ruse entered a dark period. The Verachim factory was built in Giurgiu, which polluted the air between and , impacting the city's development.
Population decreased, and 15, people moved out between and The first informal organization in Bulgaria under the communist regime was established here - The Public Committee for Environmental Protection of Ruse, which provoked the first nationwide demonstrations and strongly influenced the change to democracy.
In , the Romanian factory ceased the pollution, after the fall of the communist regime in Romania. Like other post-socialist regimes in eastern Europe, Bulgaria found the transition to capitalism rather painful and not easy as expected. State-owned enterprises lost their former markets and could not adapt to the now free-market competition. This led to massive unemployment in the city and emigration waves in 90s.
Since , Ruse has been continually regaining its former leading status. The urban economics were positively influenced by the 's accession of Bulgaria and Romania in the European Union , which allowed deeper cross-border cooperation. The flow of investments through EU funds restarted long suspended projects which were finally completed. After decades of construction the new corpus of the University of Ruse was inaugurated in In city's centre was renovated through an EU project, worth 10 million leva.
Included in the project, a Dry Deck Fountain was introduced in an urban environment for the first time in Bulgaria. The exterior of the Rousse State Opera was reconditioned.

Dohodno zdanie , an imposing Neoclassical edifice in the city centre convincingly won the National competition "Emblematic building of the year" in The Arena Ruse sports hall with more than seats opened on 23 July nearly 40 years after initial construction efforts began. The project was suspended on numerous occasions due to a lack of financing.
An underground parking inside the sports hall has also been completed. On-going projects are the re-cultivation of the old landfill, worth 22,5 million leva. The biggest roundabout in the city with underpasses for pedestrians and cyclists, worth some 10 million leva was reconstructed. Elias Canetti , winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Post Syndicated from Nathan Peck original https: Reverse proxies are a powerful software architecture primitive for fetching resources from a server on behalf of a client. They serve a number of purposes, from protecting servers from unwanted traffic to offloading some of the heavy lifting of HTTP traffic processing.
It can serve thousands of concurrent requests with a low memory footprint. This efficiency also makes it ideal as a reverse proxy. Amazon ECS is a highly scalable, high performance container management service that supports Docker containers. It allows you to run applications easily on a managed cluster of Amazon EC2 instances.
Amazon ECS helps you get your application components running on instances according to a specified configuration. It also helps scale out these components across an entire fleet of instances. Sidecar containers are a common software pattern that has been embraced by engineering organizations. Just like an application can be powered by multiple microservices, each microservice can also be powered by multiple containers that work together.
A sidecar container is simply a way to move part of the core responsibility of a service out into a containerized module that is deployed alongside a core application container. The following diagram shows how an NGINX reverse proxy sidecar container operates alongside an application server container:. The NGINX reverse proxy then forwards the request to the application server and returns its response to the client via the load balancer.
Security is one reason for using a reverse proxy in front of an application container. Any web server that serves resources to the public can expect to receive lots of unwanted traffic every day.
Some of this traffic is relatively benign scans by researchers and tools, such as Shodan or nmap:. But other traffic is much more malicious. For example, here is what a web server sees while being scanned by the hacking tool ZmEu , which scans web servers trying to find PHPMyAdmin installations to exploit:. In addition, servers can also end up receiving unwanted web traffic that is intended for another server. In a cloud environment, an application may end up reusing an IP address that was formerly connected to another service.
Ideally, the web server can reject this traffic as early as possible, before it actually reaches the core application code. A reverse proxy is one way to provide this layer of protection for an application server.
It can be configured to reject these requests before they reach the application server. Another advantage of using a reverse proxy such as NGINX is that it can be configured to offload some heavy lifting from your application container. For example, every HTTP server should support gzip. Whenever a client requests gzip encoding, the server compresses the response before sending it back to the client. NGINX can be configured to accept a plaintext response from your application container and gzip encode it before sending it down to the client.
An application may have security concerns that require SSL termination at the instance level instead of at the load balancer. Again, this also removes some CPU load from the application container, allowing it to focus on running business logic. If the traffic matches, it is forwarded to a local application container accessible at the local hostname app. If the client requested gzip encoding, the plaintext response from that application container is gzip-encoded.
ECS uses a core primitive called the task definition. Each task definition can include one or more containers, which can be linked to each other:. The NGINX container has a port mapping that exposes port 80 on a publically accessible port but the application container does not. This means that the application container is not directly addressable. The only way to send it traffic is to send traffic to the NGINX container, which filters that traffic down.
It only forwards to the application container if the traffic passes the whitelisted rules. Running a sidecar container such as NGINX can bring significant benefits by making it easier to provide protection for application containers.
Sidecar containers also improve performance by freeing your application container from various CPU intensive tasks.
Amazon ECS makes it easy to run sidecar containers, and automate their deployment across your cluster. For many carefree years, Dutch Internet users were allowed to download copyrighted content, provided it was for their own personal use. An immediate downloading ban followed. That action took place more than three years ago but as recently reported by Dutch anti-piracy BREIN, the country still has an appetite for unauthorized content consumption. Some of that takes place with the assistance of torrent sites but for the most part, file-sharers have had little to worry about.
That could all be about to change with the news that local film distributor Dutch Filmworks DFW has announced its intention to monitor torrent site users and collect data on their online activities. The news comes via the Dutch Data Protection Authority Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens , which needs to be formally advised in order for the data collection to go ahead.
However, in order for DFW to connect an IP address with an individual, the company will have to approach Internet service providers to obtain subscriber information including names and addresses. Given past experience, that will probably have to happen. In March , anti-piracy outfit BREIN obtained permission from the Dutch Data Protection Authority to collect similar data on alleged BitTorrent users, aiming to change attitudes among pirates with fines and legal action.
Should the company be successful, however, it has had detailed a stepped plan. If one cannot be reached, further legal action could be taken, up to and including prosecution and claims for damages. When asked by NU. There are many ways for SMBs, professionals, and advanced users to back up their data. The process can be as simple as copying files to a flash drive or an external drive, or as sophisticated as using a Synology or QNAP NAS device as your primary storage device and syncing the files to a cloud storage service such as Backblaze B2.
A recent entry into the backup arena is Morro Data and their CloudNAS solution , where files are stored in the cloud, cached locally as needed, and synced globally among the other CloudNAS systems in a given organization. There are three components to the solution:. The Morro CacheDrive is installed on your local network and looks like a network share.
On Windows, the share can be mounted as a letter device, M: On the Mac, the device is mounted as a Shared device Databank in the example below. This places the file on the CacheDrive. Once there, the file is automatically backed up to the cloud. All that sounds pretty straight-forward, but what makes the CloudNAS solution unique is the solution allows you to have unlimited storage space. When you need a file not currently stored on the CacheDrive, the CloudNAS software automatically downloads the file from the B2 cloud to the CacheDrive and makes it available to use as desired.
To start, you purchase a Morro CacheDrive. Next you choose a CloudNAS subscription. Finally, you connect Backblaze B2 to the Morro system to finish the set-up process. You pay Backblaze each month for the data you store in and download from B2 while using the Morro solution. The CloudNAS solution is certainly a different approach to storing your data. You get the ability to store a nearly unlimited amount of data without having to upgrade your hardware as you go, and all of your data is readily available with just a few clicks.
For users who need to store terabytes of data that needs be available anytime, the CloudNAS solution is worth a look. The post A new twist on data backup: Soon after, TVAddons itself went offline. TorrentFreak can now reveal that the shutdown of TVAddons had nothing to do with the US action and everything to do with a separate lawsuit filed in Canada. The key claim is that Lackman achieved this by developing, hosting, distributing or promoting Kodi add-ons.
Adam Lackman, the man behind TVAddons adam. To limit the harm allegedly caused by TVAddons, the complaint asked for interim, interlocutory, and permanent injunctions restraining Lackman and associates from developing, promoting or distributing any of the allegedly infringing add-ons or software. On top, the plaintiffs requested punitive and exemplary damages, plus costs. Following the filing of the complaint, on June 9 the Federal Court handed down a time-limited interim injunction against Lackman which restrained him from various activities in respect of TVAddons.
The process took place ex parte , meaning in secret, without Lackman being able to mount a defense. The Court also authorized a bailiff and computer forensics experts to take control of Internet domains including TVAddons.
These were transferred to Daniel Drapeau at DrapeauLex, an independent court-appointed supervising counsel. The Court ordered the telecoms companies to inform Lackman that the case against him is a civil proceeding and that he could deny entry to his property if he wished.
However, that option would put him in breach of the order and would place him at risk of being fined or even imprisoned.
Catch 22 springs to mind. That decision would later prove an important one. For nine hours he was interrogated and effectively denied his right to remain silent since non-cooperation with an Anton Piller order amounts to contempt of court. The TVAddons operator informs TorrentFreak that he heard a disturbance in the hallway outside and spotted several men hiding on the other side of the door. Fearing for his life, Lackman called the police and when they arrived he opened the door.
Anton Piller orders are only valid when passing a three-step test: Then there was the not insignificant problem with the exchange that took place during the hearing to obtain the order, during which Lackman was not present. We want to destroy TVAddons. The Anton Piller search should have been carried out between 8am and 8pm but actually carried on until midnight. As previously mentioned, Adam Lackman was effectively denied his right to remain silent and was forbidden from getting advice from his lawyer.
None of this sat well with the Honourable B. Richard Bell during a subsequent Federal Court hearing to consider the execution of the Anton Piller order. They took the form of orders or directions.
But shockingly, the interrogation of Lackman went much, much further. TorrentFreak understands that the TVAddons operator was given a list of 30 names of people that might be operating sites or services similar to TVAddons. He was then ordered to provide all of the information he had on those individuals. The Judge went on to note that from their own mouths, the Anton Piller order was purposely designed by the plaintiffs to completely shut down TVAddons, despite the fact that only a tiny proportion of the add-ons available on the site were allegedly used to infringe copyright.
Judge Bell said that while the prima facie case may have appeared strong before the judge who heard the matter ex parte without Lackman being present to defend himself , the subsequent adversarial hearing undermined it, to the point that it no longer met the threshold. As a result of these failings, Judge Bell declared the Anton Piller order unlawful. So, if an injunction to close the site was granted, the litigation would effectively be over, since the plaintiffs already admitted that their aim was to neutralize the platform.
If the platform was neutralized, Lackman could no longer earn money from the site, which would harm his ability to mount a defense.
With the Anton Piller order declared unlawful and no interlocutory injunction one effective until the final determination of the case handed down, things were about to get worse for the telecoms companies.
On top, the Judge told independent counsel to give everything seized during the Anton Piller search back to Lackman. The order to return items previously seized.
But things were far from over. Within days, the telecoms companies took the decision to the Court of Appeal, asking for a stay of execution a delay in carrying out a court order to retain possession of items seized, including physical property, domains, and social media accounts.
Speaking with TorrentFreak, Adam Lackman says that he has no choice but to fight the telcoms companies since not doing so would result in a loss by default judgment. Interestingly, both he and one of the judges involved in the case thus far believe he has an arguable case. Lackman says that his activities are protected under the Canadian Copyright Act, specifically subparagraph 2.
A person whose only act in respect of the communication of a work or other subject-matter to the public consists of providing the means of telecommunication necessary for another person to so communicate the work or other subject-matter does not communicate that work or other subject-matter to the public;.
We desperately need help in financially supporting our legal defense, we cannot do it alone. If we lose, it will mean that new case law is made, case law that could mean increased censorship of the internet. In the hope of getting support, TVAddons has launched a fundraiser campaign and in the meantime, a new version of the site is back on a new domain, TVAddons.

Below I propose some hacks that fit this bill, though in no particular order. If you use the same password for every website, and one of those websites gets hacked, then the hacker has your password for all your websites. No, this is the very worst thing you can do. This combines code with data, so the obvious consequence is that hackers can craft data to mess with the code.
The moment you write code that adds unfiltered user-input to an SQL statement, the consequence should be obvious. CGI shell injection is a similar issue. It works because websites will echo back what is sent to them.
Wikipedia on SQL injection , Wikipedia on cross site scripting. Burpsuite , SQLmap Buffer overflows In the C programming language, programmers first create a buffer, then read input into it.
If input is long than the buffer, then it overflows. The extra bytes overwrite other parts of the program, letting the hacker run code. We are three decades after the first major buffer overflow exploits, so there is no excuse for C programmers not to understand this issue. What makes particular obvious is the way they are wrapped in exploits, like in Metasploit. However, once that exploit is written, any trained monkey can press a button and run the exploit.
The consequence of this was obvious — hackers could and did upload code to take control of the server. This was used in the Morris Worm of Most Internet machines of the day ran SendMail, so the worm spread fast infecting most machines. This bug was mostly ignored at the time. It was thought of as a theoretical problem, that might only rarely be used to hack a system. Indeed, easy-to-use email systems makes detecting the difference harder. We have no solution to the problem of bad email attachments and links.
Viruses and phishing are pervasive problems. Yet, we know why they exist. Default and backdoor passwords The Mirai botnet was caused by surveillance-cameras having default and backdoor passwords, and being exposed to the Internet without a firewall. The consequence should be obvious: You want a remote way to reset them. Therefore, they put backdoor passwords to do the reset. Such passwords are easy for hackers to reverse-engineer, and hence, take control of millions of cameras across the Internet.
Many users will not change the defaults, leaving a ton of devices hackers can hack. It surprises people that this possible, but it obvious from the numbers. Internet addresses are only bits long, or roughly 4 billion combinations. A fast Internet link can easily handle 1 million packets-per-second, so the entire Internet can be scanned in seconds, little more than an hour.
Why are they hacking me? What did I do to them? They are hacking me! How can I hack them back for some retribution!? They expect their services to be encrypted, without them having to worry about it. But many services especially old ones may not be encrypted.
This allowed the cookies to be sniffed and stolen, allowing other people to share the login session. Google, and other major websites, fixed this soon after. But it should never have been a problem — because the sidejacking of cookies should have been obvious. This probably should be up near 1 in terms of obviousness. One of the interesting consequences is how it affects domain names DNS.
This has been used in lots of hacks. Just google it to find example after example. For example, on the day the bank manager is out on vacation which you got from their Facebook post you show up and claim to be a bank auditor, and are shown into their office where you grab their backup tapes.
Thus, it was possible to make tone generators to do things other than simply dial calls. The problem was obvious back in the day, which is why as the phone system moves from analog to digital, the problem was fixed. Wikipedia on blue box , Wikipedia article on Steve Wozniak. A simple trick is to put a virus on a USB flash drive, and drop it in a parking lot. Somebody is bound to notice it, stick it in their computer, and open the file.
This can be extended with tricks. Another example is to go online and get custom USB sticks made printed with the logo of the target company, making them seem more trustworthy. They now only played the game infecting themselves with our virus , but gave to others inside the company to play, infecting others, including the CEO. Thumb drives like this have been used in many incidents, such as Russians hacking military headquarters in Afghanistan. You can change it.
Thus, if you see a URL that looks like this: Post Syndicated from Darknet original http: In the wake of the Dish Network lawsuit filed against TVAddons in Texas, the booming Kodi third-party addon scene received its first real taste of corporate power.
With lawyers breathing down their necks, several high-profile Kodi addons took the decision to shut down and even TVAddons itself went offline without explanation. With very little news surfacing, last week we revealed how three key domains previously operated by TVAddons had ended up in new hands. With no explanations forthcoming from company owner Daniel Drapeau or staff at TVAddons, no solid conclusions could be reached. Was this part of a settlement with Dish Networks or was something unrelated underway?
With everyone involved remaining tight-lipped since, further investigations by TorrentFreak this week have revealed more developments on the domain shifting front, with one in particular catching the eye.
Back in May, one of the oldest and most popular Kodi addons was shut down by its operators. Navi-X, which was used by hundreds of thousands of people, was discontinued after spam, pollution of its indexes, and mislabeled adult content piled on top of general legal fears.
Navi-X was a particularly iconic piece of software. Subsequent success aside, that longevity put the addon into the history books.
Another domain — navi-x. Both are now under the control of lawyer Daniel Drapeau. What is unusual about this situation is that Navi-X shut down long before the Dish lawsuit was filed against TVAddons.
Again, no one wants to talk, but the situation appears to be fluid. In addition to the TVAddons. All the signs point to legal action of some kind but the nature of that is still unclear. How does info-beamer do this? Using Raspberry Pi in video-based projects Since it has an HDMI port, connecting your Raspberry Pi to any compatible monitor, including your television, is an easy task. You have three options: Full node — you enable syncing, which means the whole blockchain gets downloaded.
You are able to send messages e. Offline no node — just create and sign the transaction, compute its raw representation in the ethereum RLP format and push it to the blockchain via a centralized API, e. On test networks you can get free ether by utilizing a faucet. In order to use a test network there are two more parameters below — blockchain.
Note that there are more test networks at the moment, for experimenting with alternatives to proof-of-work. Only using that private key you can sign transactions using an ellptic curve algorithm. The private key has a corresponding public key, which is basically your address on the network — if anyone wants to send funds, he sends them to your public key.
But only you can then send funds from your account, as nobody else owns the private key. Which means you have to protect it. Consider using some key-management solution as outlined here peer. So I excluded them and manually used newer versions sync. What are the parameters above? That way nobody can replay the same transaction and drain the funds of the sender the transaction that gets signed contains the nonce, so you cannot use the same raw transaction representation and just resubmit it.
How to obtain the nonce? You can read more here. If you are connected to the network, you can obtain the gas price automatically. If you are curious why you have to encode it in a transaction, you can read here. A data lake is your source of truth The ability to integrate disparate data types is critical to maximizing the utility of RWE.
Life sciences companies have to be able to store, search, and retrieve data of different types and sizes, including but not limited to the following: Streaming data from wearables and medical devices Structured data from genomics and claims data Unstructured data from notes in electronic health records A common solution to integrate these data types is a data lake. Although there are many uses for storing real world evidence data in a data lake, here are a few examples of the processes it can facilitate for pharma and biotech companies: Quickly access all data for a given subject, from clinical images to genomics to claims data.
Select specific windows in longitudinal studies microbiome, metabolomics, etc. The following diagram shows an architecture of the features within a data lake and several examples of how data enters a data lake: The data catalog contains metadata about all the object data in Amazon S3, as well as data that resides in databases, such as Amazon Redshift.
Normalizing data for real world evidence As I previously mentioned, data can enter your real world evidence data lake in many different formats. Here is an example Step Functions state machine for this process: The following is the accompanying JSON that produces it: Unless you are just starting out, you will have a large amount of data you want to upload to the cloud.
